Edward Enninful will receive the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator at this year’s British Fashion Awards, the British Fashion Council announced today.
   Ghanese-born Enninful is a stylist and the current fashion and style director of W.
   In 1991, he became fashion director of I-D, at the age of 18, making him the youngest editor at a major international title. Seven years later, he became contributing fashion editor of Vogue Italia, and he held the same post at Vogue in 2006. In 2011, he took on his role at W.
   Enninful has also worked on campaigns for Gucci, Comme des Gar√ßons, Christian Dior, Dolce and Gabbana, Celine, Lanvin, Mulberry, Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Jil Sander, Calvin Klein, Fendi, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, Hugo Boss, and Missoni.
   I-D founders, Terry and Tricia Jones, said, ‘When the wonderful Simon Foxton first introduced Edward into the I-D family, we had no idea that he would become one of the most outstanding stylists of his generation. He not only brought his own talent to the magazine, but started working with hundreds of other individual youngsters at the beginning of their careers. His fashion corner in the I-D office was always a mecca for ideas and supermodel diversity became one of his many contributions to the international fashion industry.
   ‚ÄėWe are thrilled and super proud that I-D‚Äôs youngest-ever son has travelled so far in his career and feel very privileged to have known him as a teenager. Edward’s own individual talent, his absolute loyalty, his encouragement and promotion of other peoples’ careers, as well as his love and belief in diversity within the industry, is rare and quite unprecedented. We truly believe that Edward’s creative voice, experience and original inspiration fully justify this very prestigious award!’
   Supermodel Naomi Campbell said, ‘Edward is not only one of my dearest friends and brother, but he is also one of the most outstanding people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. His unique talent, drive and imagination are poured into his work, making him responsible for some of the most heart quickening imagery in the history of fashion.’
   Fashion photographer Stephen Klein added, ‘Edward has exquisite taste and precision and is both sensitive to the aim of the photographer and venue without compromising either.’
   Speaking for the British Fashion Council, Natalie Massenet, its chairman, said, ‘Edward’s creative energy and level of vision captures the mood of our times: his work is original, energetic, sincere and unforgettable. His creative journey may have started in London, but today his influence spans the entire globe intersecting the worlds of fashion, art and business.’
   The British Fashion Awards 2014 is sponsored by Swarovski, Canon, MAC, Toni & Guy, Vodafone, American Express, Marks & Spencer, Mercedes Benz, Penhaligon’s, and Rightster.

It’s Heidi Klum Intimates as the German model takes over from Elle Macpherson at Bendon

Model and businesswoman Heidi Klum will succeed Elle Macpherson with her own lingerie line at Bendon, the company announced today.
   Elle Macpherson Intimates, which first launched in New Zealand in 1990, has established itself as Bendon’s flagship range. As of January, the entire range will be renamed, and Klum will take over Macpherson’s role as the creative director and the face of the brand.
   Heidi Klum Intimates will appear in 1,800 retail locations worldwide.
   The other Macpherson lines will also be rebranded. The men’s line will be named HKMan, and the accessible line will be called Heidi by Heidi Klum.
   Bendon says there will be extensions into swimwear.
   In the last 25 years, Elle Macpherson Intimates had become the largest celebrity-endorsed intimate apparel collection the world, says Bendon.
   In a release, Bendon CEO Justin Davis-Rice called Macpherson ‘a great partner to Bendon’ as the association ended.
   ‚ÄėFrom the first meeting [with Klum] it was obvious that we were destined to collaborate and work together‚ÄĒher energy, work ethic and passion for lingerie is incredible. I am looking forward to working with her as we continue to build on the heritage of our Intimates brand,’ he added.
   Klum said, ‘I’ve always loved lingerie and can’t describe how incredibly exciting it is to globally launch my Intimates collection with Bendon, a true leader of the industry. In addition to spending a majority of my career modelling lingerie, I am also a woman whose body has changed over the years. I am a mother of four children so I genuinely understand the importance of finding the right lingerie. I want women everywhere to feel sexy, empowered and confident in my collection every time they wear it.’
   Both Davis-Rice and Eric Watson, who co-owns Bendon through his Cullen Investments, citing the globalization of the intimate apparel market, see Klum was being a recognizable face who the company can leverage. Sister brands include Stella McCartney Lingerie, Pleasure State, Fayreform and Lovable.

See even more pics here, and why Baz Luhrmann thinks Gis√®le B√ľndchen is the modern embodiment of what Gabrielle Chanel stood for



Hugh Stewart

Chanel has teased its new campaign, dubbed ‘The One That I Want’, featuring Gis√®le B√ľndchen.
   The company has released two images and a 15-second video for the next push of its iconic Chanel No. 5 fragrance. Director Baz Luhrmann helmed the spot, which shows B√ľndchen surfing, and leaning up against a large number 5.
   B√ľndchen herself had released a shot of her holding a Chanel logo surfboard on her Instagram on October 7, and a second image from the campaign on October 11.
   Hugh Stewart shot the latest images of B√ľndchen, who, naturally, wears Chanel make-up, including le Blanc de Chanel and Perfection Lumi√®re Velvet foundation in beige, Cr√®me de Chanel blush in R√©v√©lation, les 4 Ombres eyeshadow in Tiss√© Mademoiselle, Le Volume mascara in black, and Rouge Coco lipstick in Mademoiselle. She wears a pink and black neoprene bikini top and a long-sleeved black and pink neoprene wetsuit especially made by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel. The wetsuit sports the iconic 5 on the back.
   The supermodel follows on from other celebrities including Catherine Deneuve, Nicole Kidman, Audrey Tautou, Keira Knightley and perhaps most unusually, Brad Pitt.
   The campaign breaks on October 15, two years to the day after Pitt’s campaign broke. The hashtag #TheOneThatIWant will be used in social media.

Meadowlark shows its ‘anarchist queen’ Dynasty jewellery collection

Meadowlark’s Dynasty collection builds on its previous two, Ritual and Veni Vedi Vici, taking the inspiration from an ancient Russian monarch, traditional Indian bridal adornment and grunge‚Äďluxe supermodel nostalgia, says the company.
   The company had already made headlines for its distinctive, high-impact jewellery with Rihanna modelling its pieces in the September 2014 issue of W.
   There’s more than a nod to the body-piercing √¶sthetic: among the items are headpieces, nose chains, septum and lip rings, stud and hoop earrings, rings and necklaces, all taking strong forms such as spears, thorns and discs, and encrusted with diamonds, emeralds and rubies.
   The earrings are sold individually, allowing for maximum customization.
   ‚ÄėWe took the idea of ‚Äô90s piercing jewellery and put a luxe, grown-up twist on it using silver, gold and diamonds.’ says designer and co-founder Claire Hammon. She says the collection is ‘for the brave,’ suiting what the company calls a ‘modern anarchist queen’ who wishes to defy the status quo.

Supermodel Kate Moss fronts the Kérastase Paris campaign for its new Couture Styling Collection, commemorating one year of the range.
   Couture Styling is K√©rastase’s luxury styling collection, with new products added to its portfolio for US release in summer 2014: Laque Noire, a micro-diffusion finishing spray; V.I.P., a texturizing spray; and Baume Double Je, a defining balm.
   The campaign featuring Moss will roll out this season, inspired by what the company calls a “perfectly imperfect” look made famous by French actress Brigitte Bardot, and by the Studio 54 era.
   Moss’s hair was styled by K√©rastase artistic director Luigi Murenu. Says Murenu, ‘The Brigitte Bardot “mussed-up” ‚Äô60s look is both quintessentially French and completely universal. Kate Moss is the Brigitte Bardot of today. She epitomizes the freedom that every woman wants.’
   Norwegian photographer S√łlve Sundsb√ł shot the campaign in Paris.
   The Kerastase Couture Styling Collection can be purchased through K√©rastase salons in the US (see www.kerastase-usa.com/salon-locator for locations), and online at www.kerastase-usa.com.

Hairstylist George Gonz√°lez gives blow-out tips for Cindy Crawford’s look on Oprah’s Lifeclass

Lucire staff/8.28

Pin It

Hairstylist George Gonz√°lez, of George the Salon, worked on supermodel Cindy Crawford’s hair for her guest appearance on Oprah’s Lifeclass on April 2.
   Says Gonz√°lez, ‘I made sure to round brush starting at the bottom to build weight. Then, I finished the blowout by styling the sections at the top to minimize volume. The result is soft and natural.’
   His tips for blowout include:

  • ‚ÄĘ hot tools are often the number-one culprit for frizz, especially if a heat protectant is never used while styling;
  • ‚ÄĘ for a blowout, women often put the drier directly against the hair because they think that‚Äôs the way to get it straight. This why there is damage and frizz, especially when paired with a metal brush;
  • ‚ÄĘ the worst thing we can do is use old blow-driers or not cleaning out their air vents. Due to lint or hair build-up, air cannot flow through; therefore, the pressure goes down and too much heat is used to style;
  • ‚ÄĘ if one part does not look good, spray it with water and redo it. Never keep going over it dry. This will make it worse. Not re-wetting hair could be the reason most women have bad hair days, because they try too hard and then over-dry their hair;
  • ‚ÄĘ a dusting of dry shampoo at your roots will really kick-start the staying power of your blowout;
  • ‚ÄĘ to further preserve your style, sweep tresses up and use large bobby pins to create loosely sculpted pin curls before you go to bed. Four to six large sections will do the trick. When you release and shake out in the morning, you feel like you just left your stylist’s chair.

   Gonz√°lez’s salon prides itself on the idea of balance, and as part of its social responsibility efforts, helps victims of domestic violence.

Designer L’Wren Scott, 49, found hanged in apartment‚ÄĒdeath treated as suicide

Above Mick Jagger and L’Wren Scott pictured last November.

Fashion designer L’Wren Scott, 49, has been found dead in her Manhattan apartment, with her death being treated as suicide by New York police.
   Scott was found hanged by her assistant, whom she had texted earlier in the day to go to the apartment, at 10 a.m. EDT.
   No suicide note was found, according to police, whose investigations continue.
   Her company was in millions of pounds of debt. The firm, LS Fashion Ltd., had a loss of ¬£3¬∑5 million, and it had been run at a loss for several years before. Some ¬£4¬∑6 million was owed to creditors, with ¬£1 million due within a year. LS Fashion Ltd. had ¬£1¬∑1 million of assets.
   Scott’s autumn‚Äďwinter 2014‚Äď15 show at London Fashion Week had been cancelled. Late last year, Scott launched a line in collaboration with Banana Republic.
   She was born Luanna Bambrough in Utah. Having reached 6 ft in height by age 12, she learned to make her own clothes as she struggled to find anything that fitted her. She modelled in Paris before heading to Los Angeles to become a stylist and costume designer. Her label started in 2006.
   Her designs were a favourite of this publication, and US First Lady Michelle Obama, and celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Amy Adams, Pen√©lope Cruz and Christina Hendricks were among her fans.
   A spokesman for the British Fashion Council said, ‘We are deeply saddened at the news of L’Wren Scott’s tragic death.
   ‚ÄėShe was an iconic woman who inspired so many, and a designer whose contributions to the fashion industry were both extraordinary and unique.
   ‚ÄėShe will leave behind an exceptional legacy, however we are so incredibly proud to have had her in our midst.’
   She was the long-term girlfriend of the Rolling Stones’ Sir Mick Jagger. They had been together for nearly 13 years and Jagger had spoken about her fashion collections in the past.
   Jagger had arrived in Australia for the Rolling Stones’ tour there, which may be cancelled.
   Bianca Jagger, Sir Mick’s ex-wife, led tributes, saying, ‘Heartbroken to learn of the loss of the lovely and talented L’Wren Scott. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. May she rest in peace.’
   Supermodel Naomi Campbell wrote on WhoSay: ‘I am deeply shocked and devastated by the news. L’Wren was someone I knew since I was 17. We travelled the world together many times. L’Wren was someone I always loved. She was the epitome of elegance and femininity yet still had a girlish quality. I will miss her honesty and I will miss her friendship.
